Summary

Its sheer functionality, connectivity and accessibility make the Internet an information force to be reckoned with. However, there is very little qualitative data on how the Internet is impacting upon information-seeking in the workplace. The Media and the Internet is a crucial piece of research into how journalists and other media workers are actually using this new resource. Using largely unstructured interviewing techniques, more than three hundred journalists and media librarians were surveyed. The findings are highly relevant to all those working in information-intensive sectors.
